NE faculty and students recognized at International Conference on Nuclear Engineering

Faculty and graduate students at the School of Nuclear Engineering were recognized for their outstanding strides in the nuclear engineering field during the 28th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE28), which took place virtually from August 4 to August 6, 2021.

The conference is the premiere global forum on nuclear reactor technology where nuclear professionals gather to discuss industry trends. It is hosted by three leading international societies, including the Nuclear Engineering Division of The American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) and the Chinese Nuclear Society (CNS).

Professionals from government, academia and industry have the opportunity to discuss innovative technical issues and solutions to address challenges that the global nuclear community faces. The ICONE also has a student program that supports the development of future generations of nuclear professionals.

The following is a list of recognized faculty and students, including their winning research papers:

Best Paper – North America Award

Graduate student Junghyun Bae, Stylianos Chatzidakis, and Robert Bean

Paper title: “Effective Solid Angle Model and Monte Carlo Method: Improved Estimations to Measure Cosmic Muon Intensity at Sea Level in All Zenith Angles”
